FIRST EUROPEAN SURGERY PERFORMED WITH THE NEW PERLA® POSTERIOR OCCIPITO-CERVICO-THORACIC FIXATION SYSTEM
On February 22nd 2021, Dr. Andrés Barriga Martín, Head of Orthopedic Surgery and Traumatology in the National Hospital of Paraplegics of Toledo, Spain, was the first surgeon in Europe to successfully use the PERLA® Cervical, including occipital plates and adjustable rods, to perform an occiput to C4 posterior cervical fusion procedure.
The PERLA® Posterior Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic fixation system completes the new Thoracolumbar PERLA® TL system, which is expected to be fully launched in 2021. PERLA® is now a complete platform of implants and instruments bringing procedural efficiency to all posterior spinal fusions from the occiput to the pelvis.
SCARLET® AC-T is the first stand-alone cervical device offered by Spineart. The titanium cage, secured with bone screws, is inserted flush to vertebral bodies thus reducing potential risks associated with dysphagia and adjacent-level ossification. With lordotic and anatomic profiles, 2 footprints, and multiple cage heights, SCARLET® AC-T allows surgeons to address variable patient anatomy while providing optimal fit between endplates.
As with all of Spineart’s ever-expanding spine portfolio, the SCARLET® AC-T system is comprised of sterile-packed implants and one compact instrument set.

Spineart is proud to announce that the first cervical disc arthroplasty surgeries ever done in Uruguay were performed using the BAGUERA® C Cervical Disc Prosthesis.
In January 2021, Dr Alvaro Rocchietti successfully performed the two procedures at the British Hospital de Montevideo.
Dr Rocchietti commented “The two patients had an excellent post-operative result, without pain and a full recovery of their pre-operative symptoms. They are both satisfied with the outcome of the surgery”.
The BAGUERA® C Cervical Disc Prosthesis is an MRI safe spinal device. The endplates of the BAGUERA® C are anatomically shaped and their inner bearing surfaces are coated with a diamond-like material that features a low coefficient of friction. The load sharing design and the guided mobile nucleus are intended to prevent excessive constraints on the facet joints and the adjacent levels.
With over 10 years follow up and more than 44k units implanted worldwide, BAGUERA® C stands out as top-notch artificial disc replacement device, elegantly engineered to ensure a safe and effective treatment option for the patient.
Spineart has successfully completed 2,000 PERLA® Cervical surgeries in the US.
Launched in 2017, PERLA® Cervical is Spineart’s first cervical posterior fixation system. The comprehensive implant range includes cranial-caudal and medio-lateral preferred angle screws, 8 different connector designs, rod-rod and head-head cross connectors and titanium and cobalt chrome rod options.
As with all of Spineart’s ever-expanding spine portfolio, the PERLA® Cervical fixation system is comprised of sterile-packed implants and one compact instrument set.
More recently, Spineart launched* the PERLA® Posterior Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic fixation system, which includes occipital plates and adjustable rods. This new development completes the PERLA® TL range, a new thoraco-lumbar fixation system, which is expected to be fully launched in 2021. Spineart is now able to provide surgeons a full portfolio of implants to perform surgeries from the Occiput to the Iliac crest.

Spineart is proud to announce the first surgeries involving PERLA® TL Cortical, the new Posterior Thoraco-lumbar Fixation System.
On January 19th, the first world-wide surgery with the new PERLA® TL Cortical system was a one-level fusion from L4 to L5, performed by Dr. Jeroen Ceuppens at AZ Groeninge in Kortrijk, Belgium. A week later, on January 25th, the first PERLA® TL Cortical case in the US was a two-level fusion from L4 to S1, performed by Dr. Jason Huffman, MD at Queen of the Valley Hospital in Napa, California.
Dr. Ceuppens said “The system gives a very good tactile feeling when connecting the modular head onto the screw shank. You can feel it when the head is seated onto the screw and the final locking is tactile and audibly confirmed.“
Dr. Huffman commented on the new system that, “The PERLA® TL Cortical system offers simplified, streamlined instrumentation. The modular shanks provided improved visibility and workflow and attaching the modular heads was quick and intuitive. Overall, PERLA® TL Cortical fully addresses the unique demands of the cortical approach and is among the best systems I have used.”
PERLA® TL Cortical, with its dual pitch threads, modular head, cortical trajectory technique, and specific retractor and distractor, is the newest addition to Spineart’s next generation screw platform, PERLA® TL. Further extensions of the PERLA® TL fixation system are expected to be announced during 2021.
The PERLA® TL Platform is under limited release.
Spineart has successfully completed over 1,000 TRYPTIK®2 C-PLATE surgeries in the US.
TRYPTIK®2 C-PLATE is the first cervical plating system offered by Spineart in the US. The system features low-profile plates and one-step, integrated locking rings to prevent screw back out. With streamlined instrumentation and sterile-packed implants, TRYPTIK®2 C-PLATE offers surgeons and operating room staff a practical solution for anterior cervical pathologies.
